While looking a bit at the website for Freedom Friends Church, I came across an online forum, in which there is listed the topic "Quakerism 101."
How could I resist...?!
Many of the posts there are written by pastor and blogger Peggy Senger Parsons, but the post about using the peach pit as a metaphor for growing the Divine Seed within us caught my eye.
Though the seed is not a new metaphor among modern Friends, after I finished reading the peach pit entry, I found I was left with two questions:
What sort of spiritual climate would I say I need to cultivate and nurture the Divine Seed in me so it may ultimately bloom, produce new fruit, and provide new seeds?Blessings,
How can I help create a spiritual climate that would in turn help cultivate and nurture the Divine Seed in those around me?
